Berthier islands circuit

Alongside the St. Lawrence River

+ 219 m / - 219 m

This 77-km circuit is a true gem winding alongside the St. Lawrence River and surrounding countryside roads. You’ll take Route #5 on Chemin du Roy toward Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Cuthbert. Passing through agricultural lands, picnic areas and beside the St. Lawrence River, you’ll be surrounded by beautiful landscapes!

From Wednesday to Sunday, enjoy a break aboard the ferryboat from Île Dupas to Saint-Barthélemy, taking in the beautiful scenery around you. The boat runs from June 24 (Fête nationale) to Labour Day, from Friday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm, at a cost of $4 per adult and $2 per child (12 and under). For a longer excursion, explore the river’s South Shore by taking the Sorel-Tracy/Saint-Ignace-de-Loyola ferry ($), which takes you to the La Sauvagine bike path. For a shorter ride, start from La Chapelle des Cuthbert and visit Île Dupas and Île Saint-Ignace without doing the suggested loop.

***Please note that the Cuthbert Chapel parking lot is open from June 1 to Labor Day. The site barrier closes at 6 p.m. Please ensure that you have left the premises before this time. Outside of the opening period, we suggest that you park at the Saint-Ignace-de-Loyola Presbytery (continue 4,1 kilometers on the road 158 East).***
